Dr. Rebekah Robinette is one of many great instructors on the NPC campus that is an alumnus of the college.
She became a student on our campus in 1996 when it was known as Garland County Community College. During her student years on campus she was very involved in the college’s Alpha Beta Psi chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society, student-led tutoring, and socializing with fellow students. Her experiences with faculty and the skills gained through the MLT program here at NPC led Dr. Robinette to further her education and work experience in North Carolina.
While in attendance at High Point University she worked in a Biotechnology company full-time. She was able to obtain such great employment solely because of the education and skills she obtained at NPC. Ultimately, Dr. Robinette went on to attend a Doctoral program in Biomedical Science at the University Of Florida College Of Medicine where she performed novel and ground-breaking fundamental medical research in Microbiology and Immunology.
Her research culminated not only in a wealth of expertise in her subject matter but also in the publication of three primary authorship and five co-authorship articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Dr. Robinette shares her experience and expertise with the students at NPC through her courses in Microbiology and Anatomy and Physiology.
